Adam Worley, the new Business Development Manager for Epsom has an incentive which could help you attract more business.
The support programme is aimed to help independent retailers employing less than 250 employees, attract more shoppers from the existing footfall within Epsom and Ewell.
Aimed at retailers - although he would be delighted to have cafes, and ‘service industry’ shops present. The course is recognised nationally as offering benefit to retailers, being run by professionals in the field of ‘buying and visual merchandising’.
In other areas the businesses have received significant uplift in sales, and a desire to undertake further training for themselves as managers but also their staff in areas such as customer service and upselling.
This initial programme of work, is being run as a pilot, with the intention that should this programme be successful he will be able to roll it out further along with a wider variety of heavily subsidised courses.
This programme is about supporting the businesses to attract business from existing footfall, whilst wider programmes of work are developed to increase footfall in the town centre.
There will be a competition after the event looking to recognise the business which has implemented the lessons taught from the sessions.
The winner for each location will receive mentor training from a previous retail director for 3hours (typically £100ph) for free.
